Warren Wilson heads up a team that covers a broad range of energy-related topics, from oil and gas production to utilities to the role of IT in making businesses both greener and more profitable.
Over the past few years Warren has focused on business management applications such as enterprise resource planning, supply chain management, and analytics, and the services required to successfully implement them to meet both financial and sustainability goals.
He has been among the leaders in helping to broaden the IT industry’s discussion of sustainability to include not just its own effects on the environment – the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from computing itself – but the larger opportunity to use IT to help organizations of all types improve their operational visibility and control to simultaneously reduce environmental impacts and improve the bottom line.
In mid-2012, Warren’s team launched a new research initiative in Oil & Gas exploration and production, focusing on IT innovations that can make existing processes more efficient and enable entirely new applications.
Warren was an analyst with Summit Strategies for eight years before Ovum acquired Summit in 2006. During much of that period he focused on mobile business applications and their role in helping organizations become more agile and responsive to customer needs and changing business conditions. Prior to joining Summit Strategies, Warren had been a reporter and editor for several US newspapers, including The Miami Herald and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
